Description: You are a born liar, a gifted con artist, or a stretcher of truths. You delight in confusion, in befuddlement, and wrong-impressions, though perhaps you an expert in ferreting them out as well. These skills may be self-taught, ingrained by a tutor, or the result of rigorous training. Tricksters are common among the ranks of thieves and assassins, but are also prominent among those seeking to catch them.
Requirements: You must be trained in either Bluff or Insight.
Benefit: If you spend at least a minute observing a target closely, you learn which skill of Bluff, Diplomacy, or Intimidate would be best for gaining favor or information from the target. Additionally, whenever an attack hits your Will defense, you immediately gain temporary hit points equal to your highest ability modifier.
